Don’t Overthink It: Make Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life
We’ve all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn’t feel like something we can choose to stop doing. It feels like something we’re wired to do, something we just can’t escape. But is it?
Anne Bogel‘s answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life. In Don’t Overthink It, you’ll find actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how you deal with questions both small–Should I buy these flowers?–and large–What am I doing with my life? More than a book about making good decisions, Don’t Overthink It offers you a framework for making choices you’ll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy, freeing you to focus on all the other stuff that matters in life.

Reviews about the ebook Don’t Overthink It:
How do I even begin to review an ebook with so many nuggets of wisdom, that if I listed them all I’d re-write the entire ebook Don’t Overthink It?Don’t make the mistake of thinking this book is only for overthinkers. At its heart, it’s a book to help anyone live a more joyful, abundant life. I read my e-galley once for an overview and now will go back through and slowly read the hard copy I pre-ordered and put these nuggets of wisdom into practice.Anne is one of my favorite bloggers/podcasters and this book is pure gold. The book is written in Anne’s trademark easy-going, conversational style. I was delighted to receive an e-galley and be a part of the launch team.This book will be on my keeper shelf! Excellent!
WOW!!! I got a theory: I developed it while thinking about Anne Bogel’s wonderful ebook Don’t Overthink It. I think we’ve now got far too many Mental Microbes.Self-doubt. Ennui. Guilt. Sloth. The list is endless.They’re our Mental Bugs.
And now especially, with social distancing. NOW you can add anger and Nameless Dread to that list. These emotions can FREEZE our actions and prevent us from acting DECISIVELY.
We doubt ourselves, waffle and waver, and our headspace is a Jumble Sale chock full of unattractive remnants of negative thinking.
So HOW can we change all that – RIGHT NOW – and ACT, with a clear, positive attitude? Anne can show us how.
Life’s no bed of roses – and it’s worse right now. So now’s the time to summon up our moral Sergeant-Major to bring some Straight ‘n Narrow Clarity into our overwrought heads.
Anne’s that Sergeant-Major. She’ll fix you up.
As you read here, keep your mind OPEN.
Don’t mentally diss this book for being too simplistic. It’s not.
IT’s THE TOUGH TALK WE NEED.
Would you like to return to normalcy again?
Would you like to have a peaceful, sane way to deal with the mountains of problems that now prevent clear, rational action?
Read THIS eBOOK Don’t Overthink It.
It can WORK if you let it.
